Head Coach updates on availability of Hornets' squad ahead of Burnley clash

Burnley | Team News

Miguel Britos is the only fresh doubt for Watford for the Premier League home game against Burnley.

The Uruguayan felt his groin in the win against Arsenal and he will undergo a fitness test today to see if he is fit enough to play against the 10th-place visitors.

"Britos is a doubt," said the Head Coach. "He and Younes Kaboul had two full games in just a matter of two days, but Britos is the one I have to evaluate most of all."

M'Baye Niang made his debut against Arsenal and he is in line for his home bow against the Clarets.

"I haven't decided the formation yet but he did very well against Arsenal," said the Head Coach of the January signing from AC Milan. "If he's okay, and there is no problem with his condition, he will play. I still need to evaluate because we are getting many of the strikers back and they are now in full condition."

Mauro Zarate is also available for selection after completing the two-match suspension he carried over from Fiorentina. "He's available," said Mazzarri. "I still need to verify his condition and decide if he will start or start from the bench."

Isaac Success will also be in a home matchday squad for the first time since the 2-2 draw with Bournemouth at the beginning of October. "He's okay, he's not injured," said a relieved Mazzarri. "He still needs to find his best condition and we will see how much he can play against Burnley."

With Jose Holebas also back from suspension, Mazzarri is delighted to be able to choose from a near fully-fit squad, with only Nordin Amrabat, Roberto Pereyra, Christian Kabasele and Costel Pantilimon unavailable through injury.

"I like to see players less with the doctors," said the Head Coach. "Once we get players back in full condition, we can get a lot more satisfaction. The most important thing is to get all of the players back that were missing for so many games. We missed many players for eight or 10 games. We were doing very well before this."
